Sentimental Sundays - with sympathy

Hello everyone

Here's to hoping my scheduling works on blogger as I'm advance posting for the next few weeks while I'm sunning myself in Cyprus.  We have a lovely house-sitter who's taking care of the dogs, but its a bit much to ask her to post for me!!  The next few posts will have been written a while ago, so please forgive the lack of personality or references to the world in general I hope you can forgive me!

Back to reality - over at SS we have a very sad but necessary occasion for making cards.  Sadly at some point we all have to make a sympathy card, and often this is difficult.  Our kind sponsor at Pinkydolls has provided some gorgeous images that can be used for such a sad occasion - but equally could be used for other occasions too.

I wanted to make this a nice clean simple card with the image as the main focus as I don't want to detract from the sad message.

Here is my inspiration for you:

She was coloured in a combination of promarkers and spectrum noir pencils.  The sentiment is computer generated and I matted and layered onto a piece of pearlescent purple card stock.

I'm so sorry if anyone is having to make this card because of a lost loved one!
